        Dr.JV HEBBAR

        I would like to correct you that Jivantyadi Yamak is not a preparation for Myopia. Rather it is for Sarva Kustha Roga & Vipadika.

        On the Contary, Jivantyadi Ghritum is a very good preparation for Myopia & other Opthalmic disorders.
        May be because of the similarity of names you got confused. Kindly rectify it.

    Good day Dr. Hebbar, I have long been using your recom sensations to treat hair loss with great success. If I could be so bold to ask, what treatment of herbs you recommend for a healthy 35 yr old female 2ho recently contracted contact dermatitis on a visit to the tropics. Your suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
